#904. View to die for
Absolutely loved the house and especially outside. That for me is the main reason to rent a house in Andalusia, the outside area. Don't get me wrong, inside was great for 6p and comfortable but outside was a gem. The pool was great, with natural water and the view was to die for. View of the lake and surrounding hills/mountains with Zahara in the distance or view of the rocky mountain behind the house with the vultures gliding through the air. Everywhere around the house are different spots to sit and enjoy your every need. Sun, breeze, shade, view of your choice....it was great. Pedro the owner doesn't speak much English and I don't speak much Spanish but he was always a call away and in the end we could communicate just fine with each other. Pedro and his wife (Marie?) and their dog Toby are super friendly and helpful. We loved the setting between Rinda, Sevilla, Cadiz and Marbella. Sevilla by the way is BEAUTIFUL. So.was Caminito del Rey and Ronda. The beachclub at Marbella was a luxurious day out and I played a round of golf in Marbella at Flamingos GC which was also a.great experience. But lazy days at the house were equally great.
So are their no downsides to the house? Sure, ai advised Pedro to make an information package for the guests how certain things work in the house, nice places to visit, where to eat, where to shop (supermarket) etc. That would have been helpful. Also in the weekend there is one other house approx. 200m away that turns into a nightclub so to speak, where the guests(?) turn up the music all weekend that it is difficult to enjoy the house the way it is intended. At least we come to such 'deserted' houses for the view and peace & quiet (nature sounds). Pedro did call the owner of.that house and it got better (or the guests left?). And in the same category, down in the valley approx 500m away 1 weekend their was a shooting event where they were skeet shooting the hole weekend. Also not the sounds we were looking for. But all in all, including our own excursions.and town visits it was GREAT. A place to come back to (I only hope.the owner of the other house does something about the.noise). Thank you Pedro, hope.to.meat you again some day.
